MONTREAL (AP) — Luis Solignac, David Accam and Matt Polster scored to help the Chicago Fire win on the road for the first time in more than two years, 3-0 over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night.

The last-place Fire (5-11-7) hadn't won on the road since a 5-1 victory in San Jose on July 23, 2014.

Chicago opened the scoring in the 16th minute when Accam raced upfield after a Montreal corner and fed Solignac on the left side for his fourth goal of the season. The Fire stuck on another counter in the 73rd when Michael de Leeuw slipped a pass to Arturo Alvarez for a shot that went off Accam and rolled slowly over the goal line. Polster scored from the left side in the 89th.

Montreal dropped to 8-7-9.
